Agilo for scrum is a Trac plugin that uses the issue tracking system and extends it with features that enable you to follow a more agile development process.

It’s still in early beta, but looks very promising already. It’s got an Apache Software License 2.0 so you can always have a look under the open-source hood ;-) Installation is possible with a python egg, so you can easy_install the whole thing, provided you have the needed dependencies (matplotlib and the python imaging library, to name a few).

After setup, Trac is modified quite substantially so let’s have ...

Thanks to the support of our users (see the discussion group thred http://groups.google.com/group/agilo/browse_thread/thread/c119eb374b731436) which helpd in nailing down a significant number of bugs, we just released another version of Agilo for Scrum 0.6.6.

  • Improved stylesheet for agilo-theme.

Thanks once more for ...

Product Backlog: Requirements or Stories

One of the "assumption" that is often made, when starting to adopt Scrum, is that there will be a Product Owner and there will also be a Product Backlog. Well, it happens that the Product Backlog quality is one of the major responsible for the outcome of what the team will produce in terms of software, and is absolutely one of the most difficult things to work out. There are many problems related to having a right Backlog in place, and as you may guess there is no "one recipe" for the right Backlog, only some important ingredients to mix up in the right way ;-)

Product Backlog: Requirements or User Stories?

Hi there, spending some extra time at the airport (thanks to lovely pilot strikes) gives me the chance to write a bit about Scrum and the Product Backlog. A Product Backlog is a stack of "features" prioritized by Business Value, which means that on top of the stack there is always the most valuable item for the customer/client.

The owner of the Product Backlog is the Product Owner and as such should be the one and only authorized to make changes to the Product Backlog, given also the fact that the main responsibility ...
